Dear families & friends,
This term we have been working on a short intensive Inquiry “What’s the go with H2O?”. This is a chemistry-based inquiry with a focus on water and states of matter. We will then do a one week Home Group Arts intensive where students have an Arts lesson every day and then will perform to one another at the end of the week. This is a great way of us assessing how students are using the skills and processes they have learnt over the term and allows us to free up the last couple of weeks to focus on swimming and end of year celebrations.
End of year Learning Summary reports
End of year Learning Summary reports will go home to families at the end of week 5. Parents will be able to then book an optional interview time with teachers if they wish to.
Lauren has returned from her maternity leave working on Wednesday to Friday alongside Emma. This has been a very smooth transition and we are excited to end the year for J1 with some consistency. The students were very excited to see her back! Teaching positions for 2024 have been advertised and are now under a panel process. We are hoping to have the outcomes of these soon so we are able to announce all staff positions for 2024 before the end of the term.
NAPLAN Survey for parents
Have Your Say On NAPLAN 2023
The Federal Government is keen to hear from parents and carers, principals and teachers about their NAPLAN experience.
They would particularly like to understand your views on the earlier timing of NAPLAN (March instead of May) and the new proficiency standards.
